I wonder if the reason why FALC members are getting increasingly defensive is because their religion is being questioned much more, and they really have no biblical basis to their religion. Now that all this info about the church is on the internet. It's gotta be making them uncomfortable.

Try asking a FALC member what the gospel is and how it is possible that only they possess it.

Your answer will be "I don't know" or silence.

You're not alone Beth. I can't carry your burden other than to say, I listen. You can speak freely to me.

No, you are not alone Beth.

I find it very chilling how the people in the FALC have reacted...and to think that I thought they were loving christians.

Carol, listening is carrying it. And it was by blogging that I have allowed others to carry, but the first reactions were lacking indeed. But, I have found wonderful folks, mostly...outside of the church, a few who are half in and half out, but most are out who have been very supportive, and I greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for listening, understanding, reading and helping me have the courage to write my truths, my experiences.

What I want to say to those who are in the FALC, but feel they would not act this way, if the words fit, wear them...if not then let them lay.
